|so much to say

for once, i have a lot to talk about.
i got two goldfish about a 2 months ago. they are sharkbait and gorbichov. they were doing really well until last week, when sharkbait got the ick. i thought i cleared it up with salt and medicine, but unfortunatly after his second dose he gave up. his tailfin had been eaten off by the ick, overnight. which.. made swimming hard for him, after the medicine, he seemed to be happy, even with his lack of tail. i made sure he was eating, i got a food ring that keeps it in one spot in the tank. i even hand fed him. i did the best i could to help him get better, but he died late morning on wednesday. i cried. like a baby. hes the first pet ive had that i personally took care of that died. i didnt handle his ick very well, and i didnt handle his death well either. however, im planting a memorial garden in his name. i was going to plant a garden in the backyard anyway, but, its now going to be the Sharkbait memorial garden. lol
i am also on day 4 of a raw vegan diet. i dont plan on being a raw vegan forever, but i do want to switch to veganism. i, am not doing it for the animals or the enviroment, because, i do what i can now, and i could do more, but im not going to throw paint on people in fur or anything, i dont care that much. as a matter of fact, i hate peta. so there. i am doing it for the weight loss, and for the overall healthiness of it. i eat a bunch of junk already, and i cant seem to stop, so im cutting it out completely. i love food, and the challenge of finding new ways to prepare food and new foods entirely really interests me. i was originally planning on just doing the raw vegan for 5 days as a detox, but i think im going to extend it a few more days, since i have not lost as much weight as i hoped. boy, and two friends have been doing this as well, and the weight is dropping off of them. i dont think im drinking enough water, and i need to add more cardio exercise. ive been trying to move as much as possible at work, and i did pilates last night, and a new yoga thing tonight, im going to continue to do the yoga since i feel stretched and awake. however, im going to find a cardio routine tomorrow to add, since its obvious im not going to get on the elliptical. *shrugs*
i did just get a bike though, and im psyched about it, it just needs new tires before it can be ridden, and since i got paid, i can finally do that! i am really looking forward to the vegan diet though. there are so many foods that are so much better vegan. tonight i made a avocado chocolate mousse. OMG. so effin good. i had a few spoons of it on banana. ... and all of it that i kept licking off my fingers and spatula while i covered the kitchen in chocolatey goodness... lol. it is so amazing.
speaking of getting paid. i got hired today! im really really excited about it. even if its going to take 3 months before i start. but it gives me more time to lose weight before i start buying a new business wardrobe. ... im so psyched. i just 3 months or so until i can quit my current job!!! woot!
next week is my birthday, and before i started the vegan thing, i invited everyone out to Pub Dog in columbia. on march 31st, the day before my bday. if you wanna come, your invited! im gonna make an exception to the vegan rules for that day. i think they have vegan friendly food though. im not sure. but that would be awesome. the only thing about eating vegan, and especially raw vegan is it takes very little alcohol to knock you off your ass. we found that out before we started for real. when it wasnt an official plan. lol. but i havent drank since then, and its not gonna take much to destroy me.. at least if im out i wont pound back drinks... *shrug* im turning 24. and i feel like i have a lot to celebrate.
well. i think there is something else, but i cant remember it now. so. im done.
OH YEAH!! boy and i got our matching tattoos! they are sweeeet. they need to get touched up, but either way they are awesome. they are puzzle pieces on our wrists. my left his right. his is muscle tissue showing, and mine is the underside of the flesh. so we fit together. lol.
ok. i gotta pee. im done!
